Tool of the month

Here's how to send that file anywhere.

This article appears in the August 06 issue of PC Advisor, available in all good newsagents now.

I use the convenient 'Send to' function in Windows Explorer a few times a day – to access it, right-click a file. But the 'Send to' menu collects file-link clutter because programs often add links to it without asking. To manage your 'Send to' menu, give SendTo 1.6 a try (www.trogsoft.com).

This freebie lets you add or remove links easily. For instance, I added my email program so that I can quickly attach a file to a message; another link lets me transfer files to my wife's networked PC. If you're reluctant to try the tool or you just want to remove the 'Send to' debris, use Windows Search to find the SendTo folder and simply delete the unwanted links.
